Projectors at Play
Projectors aren't the buttoned-up-for-the-offices tools they used to be. Like girls in the 80s, your projector just wants to have fun!
We polled our customers to see how they play with their projectors. Keep reading to see some of our favorite suggestions!
Video Games on the Big Screen
Take your gaming experience to the next level with your projector. Flat screens are no match for giant-sized projected images in 1080p HD (and 3D)! Connect your projector to your favorite gaming system to experience nearly life-size gaming. Paired with a basic sound system, it's easy to feel immersed in the game's environment.
Surf the Web
Family Time: Gather the family in front of the projector for some quality time tonight. Hook up your laptop and ask your kids to show you their new favorite websites. They'll love running the show! Projecting educational web content, especially photos and videos, makes the content more exciting for everyone and is a great way to learn (and have fun!) with your family.
College Students: Turn an evening with friends into your own episode of Tosh.0 by taking turns sharing the funniest/cutest/weirdest YouTube videos on your projector. It'll be waayyy better than another night of playing cards.
Brighten Up a Rainy Day
Fight the rainy day blues by using your projector to transform your living room into an exotic locale. Search the web for live web-cams from around the world. (We like Ustream, but there are lots of great options!) With a few clicks, you'll be virtually transported to a sunny beach, a breezy valley or a room full of adorable puppies. How's that for an instant mood-lifter?
We also love projecting our computer screen savers. Hook up your laptop and transform a wall into a calming fish tank or a toasty fireplace. It will instantly change the vibe of the room.
Create Holiday Spirit
Dreaming of a white December? No matter where you spend the holiday season (or which holiday you celebrate!), you can bring the snow to you! Use your projector to turn a blank wall into a winter wonderland complete with drifting snowflakes and snow capped trees.
Take your projector outside this Halloween and project spooky ghosts and vampires on the front of your house. It's creepier than putting sheets in the trees, and is easier, too.
No matter the season, front projection is a fun, cool and contemporary way to deck your halls!
Share Photos with an Old-Fashioned Slide Show
If you have your pictures in digital format on your laptop, desktop, or digital camera, you can have a slide show using your projector. There are lots of free programs if you want to make it fancy (and most computers come with simple slide show software).
Slide shows aren't just for family reunions. Pulling out photos for a wedding reception, high school reunion or a party with old friends can be a great way to reminisce.
Watch Sports in HD
The big game doesn't get any bigger than this! Did you know that you can project images as large as 12 feet with a front projector? No TV comes close (especially for the same price!). Pair your HD projector with an HD broadcast for the biggest, sharpest HD images for your money.
Host an Outdoor Movie Night
You already know that we love taking our projector outside during a balmy summer evening to watch a movie under the stars.
On warmer nights, make it a pool party! Put your projector somewhere safe from the splashes and you and your friends can stay cool and take in a flick.
